7 Boudoir Styles To Fit Your Personality
If you know SchlickArt, you know we love the light, bright and airy style of photography that gives everyone a natural glow. In fact, we love it so much that it’s our signature style for all of our sessions. In boudoir, the Luminous style creates a very soft and romantic vibe that’s perfect on any woman. It’s inviting and natural – and it really celebrates the female form. (Did we mention that lots of natural light is also very forgiving on any perceived flaws?)
This style might be perfect for you if it’s your first boudoir shoot, and you want a boudoir style that’s guaranteed to please and stand the test of time.
On the other hand, a Dramatic style uses less light to achieve a moodier, ultra-sexy style. This type of boudoir session is becoming more and more common because it’s more sensual than some of the other styles. With heavier shadows, it also accentuates the figure for a more in-your-face dramatic look.
This style might be right for you if you want a bold shoot that really goes for the “wow factor.”
A playful boudoir style is less about lighting and technique – and more about bringing you into your shoot. This is a great way to personalize your session and turn up the fun. For example, you can wear a masquerade mask, your lover’s favorite jersey, or some sexy cat ears. We’ve even had women dress up as their lover’s fantasies, such as a plaid skirt and glasses.
This is a great style of boudoir if you’re sharing your images with your partner, and it’s also a great way to lighten up the mood of your shoot if you’re a little bit nervous or intimidated.
One of the things we always tell women when they shoot boudoir is: You don’t have to wear lingerie. In fact, you don’t have to wear or do anything you don’t want to do. The point of a boudoir session is to make you feel confident in your own skin. If that means a classic Old Hollywood vibe in a gorgeous velvet dresses and gloves, then that is absolutely boudoir. After all, boudoir is really about bringing confidence and sensuality to your images – it’s not necessarily about showing a ton of skin.
This is the perfect shoot for you if you feel sexiest in anything but lingerie. Does a comfy sweater, knee-high socks and tousled hair make you feel like you can take over the world? Great – then bring it to our studio, and we’ll show you just how sexy it can be.
We are absolutely in love with maternity boudoir! And we’re so happy that it’s finally taking its place in the spotlight as the powerhouse session that it is. There’s something incredibly beautiful about a woman who’s about to bring another life into this world. She’s confident, strong and very much in her body. And there’s something about that goddess energy that translates on camera for a showstopper of a shoot.
This session is perfect for you if you’re not quite feeling yourself during pregnancy and need a little reminder of how beautiful you are at every stage in life. It’s also a fantastic way to celebrate your pregnancy if you are feeling that goddess type of way.
Any time a client brings a pin-up boudoir idea to us – we’re all in. There’s something alluring about the pin-up style that not only accentuates a woman’s curves but also makes us all feel nostalgic for another era. It leaves more to the imagination without losing any of that super-sexiness that you’re looking for in a boudoir shoot. Want a shoot as unique as you? Consider pin-up!
This style of shoot is perfect for you if you’ve always felt like you should have been born in a different time. It’s also a fantastic style for your second boudoir shoot because it gives a completely different look than any other session.
There are few styles as dreamy as bridal boudoir. Why? It combines the innocence of white lace and new beginnings with the sexiness of boudoir. The result? A set of images that your partner will lose their mind over. You can also bring lingerie items with the word “bride” on them to really capture the moment.
This is the perfect session if you want to do something unexpected for your spouse – and it makes an incredible wedding gift for the day of your ceremony.
